Project Start Year-Round By LOUIS CASSELS WASHINGTON (UPI) — Project Head Start is going on a year-round basis. Launched this summer as a nationwide experiment in preparing deprived youngsters for the awesome adventure of going to school, Head Start has captured the public's imagination as no other aspect of the war on poverty. The Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) originally planned to enroll only 100,000 children in Head Start centers I this summer. But the response from communities across the nation was so enthusiastic that OEO ended lip financing 10,000 centers with an enrollment of 600,000. Plans for putting Head Start centers on a year-round basis will be announced soon by President Johnson. Pending his official' announcement, community officials have already been advised by OEO that they can figure on a continuing flow of federal funds. Federal support for pre- school centers is available both under the antirpoverty program and in the new school aid legislation. Funds for child health centers, which could be tie'd into Head ?t£rt projects, are provided in t:e recently enacted medicare-Social Security law. The basic objective of Head Start is to give a boost to children of poverty who have spent the first few years of their lives in such deprivation that they would otherwise start school under almost hopeless handicaps. Some have vocabularies of less than 100 words. Many -have never colored with:crayons, listened to a -story, visited <a zoo, or enjoyed any of the 'Other pre-school learning experiences which middle-class children take for granted. At Head Start /centers, they are .given medical checkups, are introduced to supervised play, and to such unfamiliar routines as washing hands before meals. Under the guidance of skilled teachers and adult volunteers the frightened, insecure or withdrawn children learn that going to school can ibe a happy experience, a door opening on a new world they've never known before.

Seeks Volunteers to Row Across Atlantic LONDON (UPD — David Johnstone, a 37-year-old bachelor, wants to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a rowboat. He placed an ad in today's London Times for five willing oarsmen to help him. "Will five fortitudinous oarsmen over 28 join me to plan and engage in second-ever transatlantic, rowing voyage?" Johnstone's ad asked. Johnstone, who says he is a journalist, said that two men rowed the Atlantic in 1897, making the trip in 55 days. "I want mature men to join me in this venture because it is likely to be physically and psychologically ' shaf taring?' Johnstone said. 'Lacquered Up CHICAGO (UPD - Two men painting a water tank in suburban Stickney got intoxicated on the job Tuesday. It was a case of too much lacquer—not liquor. Angola Karra, 38, and George Kariotis, .44, were working inside the 200-foot high tower when a co-worker peeked in and found them ''acting' goofy." Both were taken to a hospital and given oxygen. Kariotis was admitted in good condition. "He was quite wild," a hospital spokesman said. "It was intoxication—not alcohol,. but from lacquer." In fact, you might say he was all lacquered up. EVER HAPPEN TO YOU? By Blake MOM'S NEW WALL TASLE SHE'S Hints From By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: I enjoy reading your column every day, and have received so much help that I would like to offer the following ideas: In making croutons, if you dice FROZEN bread instead of fresh or stale — the squares will be nice and even. - . I also dice bac on while it is frozen. It can be cul (several pieces at a time) lengthwise about three times, and then continue cross wise. It all fries evenly for use in wilted salad, etc When using meat tenderizer, instead of using a fork to penetrate the meat, I take my cake breaker -—. 16 prongs instead of four! Joyce Burns Wow! Now, back to the croutons . . those little quarter-inch squares of toasted bread to put on top oi soups and salads that Joyce makes from frozen bread. This is a great idea. By cutting the frozen breac with a sharp knife, it will not mash flat as when we cut it aft- sr it is toasted. Too . . . the little squares will be toastec on all six sides instead of just two. I piled all those on a cookie sheet (no need to wait until the bread is thawed), and-put it on the top rack of my oven. Bake at 400 until beautifully browned. Stir gently with spoon when top layer gets golden color, so all will brown evenly. ALWAYS bake more than necessary, cool, and place in a fruit jar with a tightly-capped lid. They keep beautifully without becoming soggy, and are always ready for instant use. For a change, sprinkle part of them with parmesan cheese as they come from the oven and while they are still warm. When cool, place in separate fruit par, and use to top lettuce salad, etc. Heloise QUALITY CHEKD FRUIT DRINKS FLAVOR...fresh from the home of quality Beat the heat with your favorite dairy-fresfrfruit coolers from Quality Chekd.

Dear -Helofse: Many garment manufacturers' labels are sewn on the neck band in the back of, a garment—such as sweaters, coats, blouses^ etc. I slip the clothes hanger hook through the label, adjust the garment on the hanger, and hang it over the rod. Garments stay in place — no sleeves slipping off the hanger. Sarah E. Ruiger Dear Heloise: Empty facial tissue boxes make wonderful containers for storage of trading stamps. The stamps are easily deposited in the slot in the box, and can be left there until you are ready to paste them in the book. The children keep their postage stamps in one of these boxes until they are ready to sort them for their Stamp collection albums. Mrs. E. Wierczorek Dear Heloise: May I add this suggestion to your collection of hints? When it comes time to store your garden tools, protect them the same way many farmers protect their equipment . . by spreading a thin coating of grease over the unpainted parts of the tool. This helps keep rust from forming, and comes off as soon as the tool is used again. A few cents worth of auto grease will do the trick. Chris Mathewson You certainly may add to our collection, and I am glad the hint is such a good one. Thanks Chris. Heloise. Dear Heloise: Instead of dicsarding worn "cool" cushions (the stiff, mesh type used in cars during hot weather), we save them for our pets. The cat likes to sharpen her claws on them, and the dachshunds like to lie on them. We also keep one by the door for wiping muddy shoes. Mary Jane Mills Dear Heloise: I have always had difficulty saving seeds of my favorite flowers until this idea hit me. As soon as the plants are partly dry, I pull them and put them in a big plastic bag or paper sack. I leave them in the bag until they are all dry, then shake the bag hard, and all the seeds are at the bottom of the bag. I then remove them, put into jars, and label them for the following year.
